What do you say when you eat something really good?

There was an interesting series of comments one of the previous posts where one of the readers, James, made the remark that my use of the word “marvellicious” was exactly the same word that his daughter uses. Of course, marvellicious is not an official word in the Oxford Dictionary. It was merely a combination of “marvellous” and “delicious”. Then he went on to tell me about other words that his daughter uses like “Shiok a doo doo” and “Bombastic”.

I thought it would be fun to find out what is everyone’s favourite word when you come across something really tasty. I suspect that “Shiok” might be a popular one or perhaps you have a better and more imaginative superlative you care to share?
